Some time ago, I started binge reading.  It began when I realized that- like many people – my default response anytime I was ‘bored’ someplace was to dive into my phone and browse the web, social media, or ping my email server.  I wasted a lot of time this way.

I started downloading books on my Kindle app on my phone.  These days, I’m always reading something.  When I’m in line at the grocery store, I pop open an e-book and pick up where I left off.  And there are tons of great books available to read for free. I suggest checking out e-books from the library, many use this platform https://www.overdrive.com.  Books in the public domain can be found at https://www.gutenberg.org.
